Oracle launches SPARC-based Exalogic, updates Solaris

Oracle is sticking to its SPARC platform commitment by announcing a SPARC Solaris-based model of its cloud-in-a-box Exalogic Elastic cloud system.

Oracle delivered on its commitment to the SPARC platform, announcing on Thursday a SPARC Solaris-based model of its Exalogic Elastic cloud system, the so-called cloud-in-the-box system that was announced earlier this year at Oracle OpenWorld.

The company also announced a complete refresh of the SPARC server line and a new version of Solaris. 

At an event on the Sun Microsystems campus in Silicon Valley, the company played up the theme of the sunrise, a project that involves integration of Sun's assets into the Oracle technologies.
